To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on bilateral relations with the Republic of Estonia. 
§ Sir Nicholas Bonsor
Our bilateral relations with Estonia are close and friendly, extending across a wide range of areas including political and economic co-operation, trade and investment and defence co-operation. Our close partnership was noted by Estonian Foreign Minister lives when he visited the United Kingdom earlier this month and paid tribute to the UK's consistent support for Estonia's sovereignty and independence.
